Course Matrix Approaches to Health Demography
Monday 5 - Friday 16 November 2018
In this course, matrix methods will be used to analyze models based on prevalence and incidence data. The methods will go beyond the fixation on mean results and will incorporate variance and stochasticity. The class will introduce methods based on Markov chains, Markov chains with rewards, multistate matrix models, and matrix calculus. The new analyses will be compared, where possible, to traditional approaches.
Electron Microscopy from Amsterdam to Wageningen
Monday 12 - Friday 16 November 2018
This course gives insight into the possibilities of electron microscopy as a research tool and when to use scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM) or combined light and electron microscopy (CLEM) for your analysis. You will be able to operate an electron microscope at basic level, make images and perform basic techniques of sample preparation. To benefit optimally from this course you will need some understanding of microscopes in general, but it is not necessary to have experience with electron microscopy.
